Glenrothes background 

Sitting in a secluded glen by the side of the Burns of Rothes, Glenrothes is all about tradition.  Doing things the traditional way, and quietly focusing on producing high quality single malt scotch whisky. As they have been doing for the past 140 years.

This cask is a prime example. Perhaps more porous than most, resulting in a greater loss of ABV over the two-odd decades it has slumbered, this cask has worked wonders and produced a beautiful sherried whisky.
